At the Chess Edinburgh Council Meeting it was agreed to organise the Lothian’s Championship for the players of Chess Edinburgh Member Clubs.
This Championship will be a five round Swiss Event in which we will use the time controls of 34 moves in 70 minutes followed by 15 minutes quick play finish.
Entries will be accepted until the end of October with each round to finish before the end of November, December, January, February and March. There is a £5 entry fee with the Champion winning the Smerdon Cup using Member Clubs venues.
Numbers at last year’s Lothian’s Congress decreased by 32% and at 71 players for a two day event format, our lowest ever attendance.
Should in the future there is an increase demand for a two day event then we would restart the Lothian's Congress as well as organise the Lothian's Championship.
Finally for the Lothian’s Allegro on Sunday 15 January 2017 increments will be used for the first time. The time control will be 25 minutes plus 5 second increment per move, in which the entry form should be available shortly.
